Preschool children at Bright Horizons Teddies Basingstoke have been learning about the natural habitats of different animals.
In an exercise in line with the organisation’s Growing Scientists programme, the children were asked to investigate soil, grass, oats and sand in order to learn more about the animals that live in each and how they benefit from their surroundings.
“The children were intrigued to find what animals lived in which particular habitat and how they are surrounded by other ecosystems all the time,” said Deirdre Mellors, nursery manager. “They were excited to learn about sharing the earth with other animals.”
The Growing Scientists programme aims to help children identify scientific activities that occur in their everyday lives.
